About the show

We're a video game podcast with hosts from all over the world. Started by Londoner Cliff Goldsmith in 2015, he quickly recruited VaderVanOdin from New Zealand to be his co-host, with Jeremy Greer (US) we then brought on josh Crow. Jg and Crowe have now left the team but we have bwade, Kassandra and Matt now as part of the full time line up. Each week we bring you a different line up of people, views, topics, and feedback from our listeners.

    It's been a little while, but here we are with another episode of Dark Insight! First off, we planned to release 2 episodes this week, but technical issues resulted in one of those episodes being postponed until the near future. Unfortunately, at the time of this particular recording, everything was still full steam ahead, and thus Josh does mention the aforementioned second episode during this recording...to discover after the fact that this was not the case. Please bear with us, in this grand old age of communication we are still finding the odds stack against us occasionally. What can we say? You've gotta love it, eh?
